Renting 'green' gains popularity
Car Rental News - Thursday, 3rd January 2008
Many car companies are taking steps to reduce environmental harm.
Car rental agencies are finally responding to customers' demands for more environmentally-friendly vehicles.
Although the rising prices of petrol could be a factor in this shift as well, it is nevertheless a progressive move.
Car companies are 'going green' in a variety of ways, the purchasing of hybrid cars being a popular choice. Hertz, Enterprise and Avis all offer hybrid cars, which emit less carbon than regular cars.
Enterprise demonstrates another method with its carbon off-set program that encourages customers to make a contribution to environmental projects. This program appeals to consumers who recognize their carbon footprint and seek a way to balance it out. The company has agreed to match all contributions, with a maximum total donation of $1 million.
